The South Fayette Township Police Department is accepting new or gently used teddy bears now through Nov. 1, 2016, to help comfort children in crisis.
Project Teddy Bear donations may be dropped off at the police station, 515 Millers Run Road, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Police officers will carry the teddy bears in their patrol cars to give to children in need.
The program is being kicked off by a teddy bear drive held by the Knights of Columbus Order of St. Barbara Catholic Church in neighboring Collier Township. Those bears are being supplied to the South Fayette and Collier police departments.
